Default Don't know where to buy meat

Where do you guys usually purchase the meat and bones and other ingredients for your raw diet? I would really like to get my pup started on it, but I can't afford more than I'm paying now for his kibble (~$50 / 33 pound bag). What would you suggest?

If you go to your local grocery store you will be paying full price ($$$). Your best bet is to find a distributor or wholesaler.

I always tell people the best way to find sources is to find other raw feeders! Go to Yahoo groups and search for barf / raw feeding and look for groups in or near your location.

Here's a link for one search: Yahoo! Groups: Search Results

Look in your local yellow pages for meat purveyors or meat processors and see if they sell to the public. Explain what you are looking for (have specific items in mind to ask about).

If you tell us your location maybe someone here might know some sources, too.

I'm not sure where you are from. But I buy 10kgs of mixed meat from my local petbarn for 40bucks. But I feed raw and biscuits mixed. So if I buy a 25kg (55lbs) bag of biscuits, which cost me another 40, I am basically set for 2months. Costing me around 40bucks a month. 10 a week

Find a raw co-op & contact meat processors in your area. The cheapest way to feed raw is to have a separate dog freezer. You can typically find cheap ones off CL.
